Depression is a dark stage of a persons mind that is not easy to escape. There are things that only they can see while we listen. What people don’t understand is that there are many types of depression. When you think of depression, you would think of someone sitting in the dark quiet and emo. I suffered with depression as a pre teen and when I started college two years ago. I was ready to leave but it really hit me because I was in a whole different city alone. I am very family oriented so I love to talk to my family. I try to talk to someone every other day but they might think it too much. I actually get annoyed because they are not family oriented but I love to keep in touch. Feeling like your not wanted hurts because I “loved” being around people but now I like to be alone.
The effect of this detrimental to your health because you start to feel really emotional. I am the middle child of five and the other four are close to age so I was always alone. Incidents happened in my life that led up to this which is what I will explain in my next post. Anyways, not having people to talk to made me gain weight because I would get sad and just eat. People cause harm to themselves because there is no one to talk to or no one understands them. My depression was loneliness. I started to work on campus so my supervisor always helped me and gave me advice. She advised me to go see the school therapist but I wasn’t there because I had history with a therapist before. (It will be in my next post) She told me to keep a journal but I wan’t into writing which is why I started blogging. It’s easier to type your problems and hear people who go through the same thing. I now keep in touch and talk to my friends more than family because they listen. I still talk to my family but I keep it at a minimum.
